Evonik Commences Isophorone Facilities in China

Published May 19, 2014
Evonik Industries has commenced an integrated production
complex for isophorone and isophorone diamine in Shanghai,
China. The company has invested over €100 million in the
facilities, which will have an annual output capacity of 50,000
metric tons. Construction in the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park
(SCIP) took less than two years. Evonik primarily plans to use the
output of the new plants to serve customers in the coatings and
paint, construction, adhesives, and composite industry in Asia.
"The new plant continues our successful growth story in
isophorone chemistry. We are now represented in the three major
economic zones, Europe, NAFTA, and Asia, with fully backwards
integrated production facilities to tap into attractive new growth
opportunities," said Patrik Wohlhauser, Member of the Evonik
Industries Executive Board and Chief Operating Officer.
Evonik has fifty years of experience with isophorone chemistry and
continuously improves its process technologies. So far products
based on isophorone (crosslinkers) were being manufactured in
Marl and Herne, Germany, and in Mobile, USA.
"Evonik is the only company worldwide to cover the entire supply
chain of isophorone and its derivatives. We now are in a position to
quickly and reliably supply our customers in China and other Asian
countries from our regional production, consistently offering
products of high quality and purity," explains Dr. Ulrich Küsthardt,
Head of the Coatings & Additives Business Unit.
In addition to the new production complex, Evonik built an
application technology service center with state-of-the-art
laboratories at the Xinzhuang site in Shanghai. The customtailored
isophorone solutions will strengthen the competitiveness
of Asian customers
